2013_cronut_fever_sietsema_123-thumb.jpgOver at Eater NY, Robert Sietsema explores the "deeper meaning of the Cronut." Quote: "Pundits have described the behavior as FOMO — Fear of Missing Out, in this case fear of missing out on something that perfectly symbolizes our food culture at this place and time... In the pre-computer age — say prior to 1995 — these irrational mass fads developed more slowly, but lasted longer, never quite reaching the level of mass hysteria, but sometimes coming close."
